altblog — Kader Attia — macval
Kader Attia who has dedicated himself to research into the power relationships that continue to affect the post-colonial world, reflecting on the processes of domination that pass through the urban space and the way in which the migrant body is affected and politicised. Using documentary film, sculpture, collage and the construction of environmentally intense installations, his work dialogues with the memory of modern architecture in Africa, its appropriation through this of the history of the local and vernacular architecture and its continued repressive interference in the lives of the population.

Working together since 1995, artist duo Michael Elmgreen (b. 1961, Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (b. 1969, Norway) produce beguiling spatial scenarios that explore social and sexual politics and unveil the power structures embedded in the everyday designs that surround us.

Senta Simond‘s work focuses on an intimate approach to the female body and portraiture. Her photographs feature a circle of acquaintances and respond to existing, and too often clichéd, representation of femininity. You can pre-order the photobook here.

ROSSO, SCULPTURE & PHOTOGRAPHY

Filed under: Photographie, Sculpture | Tags: , |

Rosso_067_S_hires cropped_0
L’exposition approfondit les différents concepts sur lesquels Rosso travaille à travers son œuvre : son combat avec la matière, sa conviction que la lumière constitue l’essentiel dans l’observation d’une œuvre d’art, son opinion sur la place de la sculpture dans l’espace, sa perception de l’importance de l’environnement, la valeur qu’il attache au point de vue du spectateur, et son intérêt pour l’image et ses qualités lumineuses. Ce principe amène Rosso de la sculpture à la photographie. Comme Brancusi, il photographie ses propres œuvres dans son atelier, modifie les arrière-plans des photos, adapte leur cadrage et laisse ainsi les formes de ses images se dissoudre et se fondre dans l’espace.

PORTRAIT OF A FAMILY

altblog – TAKAHIRO KUDO – Portrait of a family © Archiraar
The series plays with Japanese family registry system. In the first stage of the series Takahiro Kudo treats « Koseki » : Japanese family registry system, and his partner’s « Familienbuch » : German family registry, as two family portraits. Despite of the fact they serve the same (or least similar) purpose, the depiction of a family unit and the visual outcomes appear differently, because of the cultural contexts they are integrated. The pieces question the ideas of a family formulated by different authorities and their alterations and limits as the depicting mechanisms in the age of globalization and social media.

SONG

interlude_still-01_web
As an exhibition, Song carries a particular tempo, closer to the time of reading than the time of looking. Alejandro Cesarco creates rhythm in his work by incorporating silences and withholdings: here the moving image works are presented sequentially, gently introducing a pace and flow to the installation and immersing the viewer in an aesthetic that the artist has elsewhere characterized as “muted melodrama.”
